Starting April 1st 2019, OSN is set to launch a new TV channel dedicated to binge viewing entire seasons of popular TV series. OSN, the region’s leading pay-TV operator has unveiled the OSN ‘Binge’ Channel offering viewers a TV- destination for an uninterrupted marathon-viewing experience.
Launching on Monday 1 April, OSN Binge Channel will kick off with the biggest shows in the world, Game of Thrones. With the highly anticipated Season 8 arriving on Monday 15 April, viewers will be able to binge watch seasons 1-7 with five episodes aired back-to-back every night, from 10pm KSA,
Other shows to binge watch include Scandal (season 7), The Good Doctor (season 2), Succession (season 1), Lethal Weapon (seasons 2 and 3) and Westworld (seasons 1 and 2). Viewers can set their boxes to series link and record shows to watch at their leisure or simply kick back and relax, delighting in the knowledge that one of their favourite shows will always be on OSN.
With the launch of ‘Binge’, OSN said it has further reinforced its customer-first strategy to deliver exceptional value through exclusive content, adding even more to its digital platforms-OSN Play and OSN on Demand.
Emad Morcos, Chief Content Officer, OSN said: “Over the past few months we’ve been listening to our customer’s suggestions and feedback, and two key things that were strikingly clear was that our customers want a simpler more focused channel offering and an easier way to find more of the content they love and that’s how the OSN Binge Channel was born. We’re also putting even more content on OSN Play and OSN On Demand than ever, making sure that series-lovers across the region can always watch anytime, anywhere and on any device.”\
The launch of OSN Binge is part of OSN's channel refresh which will offer a richer programming experience for all customers. With consolidated content, fewer repeats, new channel names and a stellar programming line-up, OSN is intent on enhancing the TV viewing experience to reverse a declining trend in the subscriber base.
Recent changes made by OSN have included cutting down sports channels, rolling out new low-cost packages and improving its content protection technology to counter piracy.
